We should have the confirmed team line-ups in a minute or two so stay tuned.
Will jet lag be a factor in Liverpool's performance today?
Plenty of Premier League players have been jetting off all over the globe during the international fortnight, but Liverpool seem to be more at risk of jet lag than the others.
With the likes of Alisson, Roberto Firmino and Fabinho heading to Brazil and Sadio Mane to Senegal this week, the Reds' players have racked up a combioned 45,278 miles on international duty.
That's just a little more than the 44,046 accumulated by Manchester United's players and a fair bit more than the 38,188 miles spent on planes by today's opponents Spurs.
Thanks to for the facts and figures.
Klopp wants a red hot display to avenge last year's Spurs calamity
Dominic King: There will be a point before kick-off when Jurgen Klopp takes a leaf from Sir Alex Ferguson's book and paraphrases one of his famous team talks.
But Klopp's version of 'Lads, it's Tottenham' will have not be laced with any kind of disparagement. Those three words will be emphasised to remind Liverpool's squad of the perils that await at a stadium in which they were stripped bare last year.
This is only round five of 38 in the rumble for the Premier League yet it is one loaded with significance. Tottenham, with their speed and their style, have it within them to blow a hole in the optimism that is flooding around Liverpool and Klopp will be at pains to stress the message.

Pochettino demands Spurs find their killer instinct

Adam Crafton: Mauricio Pochettino has demanded his players must go for the 'kill' against Liverpool after blasting Tottenham's 'testimonial' performance in the defeat at Watford.
Having seen his side demolish Manchester United 3-0 with Harry Kane on target, Pochettino was exasperated when Spurs then gave away a one-goal lead to lose 2-1 at Watford before the international break.
'It was a massive wake-up call for us,' Pochettino said. 'The first half looked like a testimonial game. It's about mentality, not tactics.

There have been 149 goals scored in Premier League meetings between Tottenham and Liverpool – Arsenal vs Everton is the only fixture to have seen more in the competition (151).

KIERAN TRIPPIER INTERVIEW: 'Man City dumping me was just the start'

Ian Herbert: He stood a few small steps away from the top of the world when he joined Sir Bobby Charlton and Gary Lineker as the only Englishmen to score a goal in football's ultimate semi-final.
And for England's Kieran Trippier the journey to the World Cup semi-final in Russia, with a stop at a Skegness caravan park along the way, now seems more significant than ever.
'It would be me and my mum in the caravan. We just used to travel around,' he says of the days more than 10 years ago when the two of them would roam all over the north to watch his brother, Kelvin Lomax, whose football career was taking off at Oldham Athletic.
